Sonitica is a real-time MIDI renderer and effects processor for Windows 3.x. It will take MIDI files as input and generate a waveform rendering of the piece, which can include an almost unlimited number of polyphonic voices, and any number of effects such as reverb and chorus. Sonitica features a sound-processing language that enables you to create your own effects and instruments. This version has the ability to play General Midi files, and also comes with a MOD-to-MIDI conversion program that will allow you to play your MOD files in Sonitica.
Sonitica also will allow you to record one or more tracks while you render the MIDI file. So you can sing or play along with the music, add effects, and mix it back into the midi file, where it will be played in perfect sync with the music.
Sonitica requires Windows 3.x/95 (don't know about NT), and at least a 486-DX33 for basic real-time rendering with reverb at 22050 KHz (well, actually more like 18000 KHz for most cases).

Here are some sample MIDI files that work well with Sonitica. Also check out the awesome collection at the Classical MIDI Archives.
I am requesting donations of instrument samples! This version only has about 50 instruments. I also welcome suggestions for non-obvious improvements. Here are some obvious ones:
